Covid: At this time we believe it is important to let our community know that one of our staff members have come back with a positive test for coronavirus. The staff member has been self-isolating since showing symptoms. Other staff who have shown symptoms have also been self-isolating and tested. The Center will remain temporarily closed at this time. The Center’s Executive Director and Board of Directors will evaluate the situation to determine the next steps and when we can safely reopen. We will continue to give updates through our Facebook page, website, and with our mass emails. We will post updates on our Facebook page, our website, and though our mass emails. The safety of our members, campers, and staff is our priority and we hope to be able to safely re-open soon to serve our community that we love
Center to temporarily close: The Center wants to make sure that members, campers, and staff stay safe. We have followed precautions, guidelines and have acted with an abundance of caution. Some of the staff has had symptoms associated with coronavirus; those staff are following CDC recommendations and are staying home. Staff have been tested and we are waiting on test results, no staff has tested positive at this time and one has tested negative. We have decided to act on the cautious side and will temporarily close starting, Thursday, June 25th at 7pm. The Center will be deep cleaned and disinfected while we are closed. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to be able to re-open once we have more answers. We will post updates on our Facebook page, our website, and though our mass emails. We love our community and we want to make sure everyone stays safe and healthy.
